Origin of name: This beer is named after its unique garnet red-brown color (darker than most dark beers). The color of Černá Hora Granát could lead its consumer to call it a "black beer". Taste: it is characterized by its fullness, sweetness and very dark color. A high proportion of Bavarian, caramel and coloring malt based on a longstanding recipe gives the beer its unmistakable caramel taste and markedly influences its bitterness. It is distinguishable by its good head and vigor. Has won 1st place in category of dark lagers upon competition - "The Golden Cup PIVEX - BEER 1999". Winning competition "Dočesná Žatec" in 1995 -1999 years

Marko (4418) - Split / Zagreb, CROATIA - DEC 21, 2010
Bottle at the Pivkan festival in Zagreb. Almost black body tinged with amber, tan head. Caramel and dusty hop in the nose. Dry bitter caramelly taste, maybe some notes of coffee. Better than the three Černa Hora beers I’ve had before it, not bad.

AshtonMcCobb (4200) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAY 5, 2012
50cl bottle. Pours a chestnut brown with a red hue which makes it look like cherry cola. Nice generous head too. The nose has nettley hops with just a hint of chocolate. The taste has toffee, smokey nuts and biscuity finish. The palate is medium bodied with a rich creamy texture and a fresh and tangy finish. Overall, this is great, like a black lager version of an English bitter.

Gurthnar (3821) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - APR 7, 2013
Tap at Hostinec Richtar Jakub. Aroma caramel, ripe apples, light smoke(?). Creamy off-white head, clear cola colour. Taste like a second running of a cheap coffee. Watery, washing rag. Bitter astringent aftertaste. This one is a step in wrong direction.

Bottle 500 ml at home, into a big Guinness glass, ABV 4.5% Dark chestnut brown on the body, two full fingers of tan head, thick and creamy, with good retention. Light lacing on the glass. Aroma of caramel, toasted malts, the faintest of chocolate. Tastes good, more chocolate and even some coffee now, iron, light caramel. Medium thin body, average carbonation, more notable on the first sips. Overall a nice beer, tasty enough.

rauchbier (3699) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - SEP 19, 2003
Bottled. Deep ruby red, almost black. Initial creamy off white head that drops to a thin cover of bubbles. Muted aromas of caramel, roast barley and berries. Full bodied and sweet in the mouth, fruity with caramel and hints of coffee. Becomes dry and chalky in the finish with some roastiness lingering.
